New Contract Awards: Anti Blast Glazing Protection

Barry Shaw, BP’s Business Security Manager for North Africa, endorsed the work carried out by Westminster saying: “We are pleased with the supply, quality and professional fitting of the blast film and we would have no hesitation in using Westminster again or recommending them to others”.

Westminster Group Plc, the AIM listed supplier of system solutions and products to the security, defence, fire protection and safety markets worldwide, announces that it has secured 3 new contracts to supply and install its anti blast glazing protection systems to protect the premises of a number of large multinational and ‘blue chip’ companies in Algeria.

Westminster recently completed a project to install 200 Micron Clear Blast Mitigation Film for international petrochemical company BP’s North Africa SPU premises in Algier, Algeria. This is Westminster’s first contract award from BP in Algeria and is in a product area offering major growth potential. Following the success of this installation, Westminster has been awarded further contracts from two unrelated businesses in Algeria.

Commenting on the new contract awards, Peter Fowler, Chief Executive of Westminster Group, added: "Powerful shock waves emanating from a bomb blast travel in all directions, very often affecting the weakest part of a building’s structure – its glazing! "Westminster’s safety and security film is designed to effectively hold glass shards together, protecting against damage, injury and death.

We have seen a recent marked increase in enquiries for blast protection systems both in the UK and overseas and we anticipate further substantial orders to follow in light of recent terrorist activity".
